We all know that Sony is working on the PlayStation 5 (PS5) and many are looking forward to it. But aside from the PS5, there’s also the PlayStation VR 2 (PSVR 2). This time around, two patents were spotted revealing that Sony is potentially working on new PSVR controllers.

The PSVR Controller Patents

According to a report, Sony has filed two patents this year, suggesting that the company is finding new ways to improve their PSVR controllers.

The patent design shows the Sony will ditch the orb found on the PlayStation Move controllers and will include analog sticks and triggers. In addition to that, there will also be this “sense of force presentation” which sounds something like haptic feedback. Furthermore, the controller will also be capable of detecting which hand it is being held and would use this feature to remap buttons accordingly.

Will This Be Featured On The PSVR 2 Controllers?

As we have already mentioned, Sony is also reportedly working on PSVR 2. Looking at this patent design, for PSVR fans or anyone who’s interested in VR games, this is certainly something to look forward to. However, the thing with patents, even if they do get published, it’s not a 100 percent guarantee that the concept will appear in a future product.

When Can We Expect The PSVR 2?

According to reports, the PSVR 2 will be released alongside the PS5 or at least in the same year. As for when is that is, it’s probably in 2020 or 2021, though the most popular speculated release date of the PS5 is in 2020.

However, some also suggest that the PSVR 2 could be released on a much later date. The thing is, the PSVR was launched 3 years after the PS4.

How Much Will It Cost?

So far, it’s still pretty much unclear how much the PSVR 2 will cost. However, it is at least expected to feature a price tag similar or more than the PSVR which costs $499 for its full bundle.

Do you think we will see this patent design in future PSVR controllers? Tell us in the comment section below.
